With the possibility of a national championship on her mind, Sheri Benson realizes her volleyball career at UC Riverside is ending much differently from the way it started. Benson, a 5-10 senior, was selected Monday as the most valuable player in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. She had shared the honor with Karen Langston of Cal State Northridge last year. And Benson, an NCAA Division II All-American last season, is also one of the favorites for Division II player of the year.

The Cal State Northridge women's volleyball team is finding the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. to be much less hospitable this season than it was a year ago. The Lady Matadors lost just one conference match a season ago in advancing to the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Division II tournament. But Friday they closed their first week of conference play 0-2 after a 15-5, 15-13, 8-15, 15-8 loss to UC Riverside in Riverside.

On the lapel of her jacket Saturday night Sue Gozansky wore a button that read: "I know what my problem is T's yours?" If the question had been directed at the Cal State Northridge women's volleyball team, the answer would have been: "They're too numerous to mention." For the third straight year, the Lady Matadors came up empty at the NCAA Division II championships. This time, they barely put up a fight.

Streaks and playoff hopes were kept alive Tuesday night as the seventh-ranked Cal State Northridge women's volleyball team defeated top-ranked UC Riverside, 5-15, 15-10, 9-15, 15-12, 15-8, in an important California Collegiate Athletic Assn. match at Northridge.

There were many times Wednesday night when the Chapman College women's volleyball team looked ready to fold. And that would have been understandable. Sure, the Panthers are the fifth-ranked team in the nation according to the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Division II poll. But on Wednesday, they were playing No. 1 UC Riverside--a team that had lost only once all season and had won 11 consecutive matches. But when all was said and done, the Panthers looked more like No. 1 than No. 1 did.

Under most circumstances, there is nothing unusual about the Biola men's basketball team starting its season with three wins in its first four games. After all, the Eagles were 31-5 last season and have been a perennial power in the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics District III. Only this season Biola has won despite having just six players available to play. With six transfers ineligible to compete at first, the Eagles figured to have only seven players at the start of the season.

David Rubio said that when he was named women's volleyball coach at Cal State Bakersfield three years ago, he was simply hoping to be competitive with national-caliber teams by this season. In his wildest dreams, Rubio admitted, he could have never envisioned that his team would win its first NCAA Division II championship. The Roadrunners won the title Saturday, beating top-ranked Cal State Sacramento in three consecutive games in Bakersfield.

When Darlene May became women's basketball coach at Cal Poly Pomona 16 years ago, she took the position with what she says were modest aspirations. "I just wanted to have a college coaching job," she said. "That was the main thing I was concerned about and I just wanted to do a good job." May has fulfilled those goals--and then some. With her team's 70-68 victory over Weber State on Saturday, May became one of the few women's basketball coaches to have 400 victories.

Ralph Perez is the first to admit that he may be a little over-qualified to coach the women's soccer team at Cal State San Bernardino. After all, there are not many National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Division III coaches whose credentials include head coaching stints with Division I men's teams at Cal State Fullerton, Santa Clara and Nevada Las Vegas. For that matter, Perez is the only Division III coach who is also an assistant national coach for the U.S. World Cup team.

The University of La Verne basketball team is off to one of its best starts ever at 7-2, but the won-loss record has taken a back seat in importance. The team has been trying to come to grips with its emotions in the aftermath of an automobile accident Nov. 26, which left one of its players dead and another seriously injured. Coach Gary Stewart said: "We haven't played very well, quite frankly, since the accident and there's a lot of things that go into that.
